Buffalo Inc is enhancing the mobile experience for Android users with a free app that will allow them one-click remote access to multimedia and data files.The App will give Android tablet and smartphone users the ability to access terabytes of movie, music, photo and data files from their Buffalo NAS (network-attached storage) device via a Wi-Fi or 3G connection, from wherever they are in the world.
Buffalo previously launched the WebAccess i app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, which has been downloaded by more than 57,000 users of Buffalo NAS storage systems.
Akihito Kondo, Buffalo’s Group Manager, Southeast Asia and Oceania Group, Asia-Pacific Sales, says the rapid advances Android has made in the tablet and smartphone world, together with the recent launches of Android tables from Samsung and LG, makes the WebAccess A app particularly timely.
“Tech-savvy Australians expect their mobile experience to mirror that of their desktop, with all the assets of their digital life available at their fingertips. The release of our WebAccess A app provides Buffalo NAS users with a simple and convenient way to enjoy and share all their favourite music, videos and photos, as well as access to important business documents, from their Android mobile device, even when travelling,” Kondo said.
Apart from enabling Photo slideshows, and playing music, the app also allows files to be saved directly on the Android device from the Buffalo LinkStation or TeraStation NAS device so you can download movies and files before long flights, for instance. It also enables photos and videos to be easily uploaded over Wi-Fi or 3G, and is easily set up so you don’t have to log in each time to access the NAS.
Users can also get Microsoft Office and PDF support while away from their offices, and it enables multiple devices to be accessed from the same App.
